Yahoo supports Wikipedia

Yahoo announces that they will "dedicate hardware and resources to support Wikipedia" and use Wikipedia content in Yahoo Search.

Google made a similar offer a couple months ago. Google uses Wikipedia content indirectly through their definitions.

Update: Tara Calishain points out that the higher visibility of Wikipedia will increase the incentive for spammers to start mucking up the Wikipedia content.

For searching wikipedia, see also a Google-suggest-like service of Surfwax. It's pretty cool.
